Well, it’ official, my son is now taller than my wife. As they were standing next to each other, I noticed that he looked an inch or so taller than my wife. She wasn’t standing straight up, but once they both did, he still had her by a hair.
Yep, my son is becoming quite a young man! It seems like he’s getting bigger and stronger by the week anymore. I’ve come to realize that his weaknesses are really just my weaknesses that he has picked up on. Now I’m working to change my behavior. This is no easy task! So far this year, he has straight As like he did last year. So what little weaknesses he does have they are minor.
My daughter, while still shorter than my wife by a large margin is getting bigger too, and more beautiful and intelligent every day. I never known anybody quite like her! Ever since she was about 1 or 2, you could look in her eyes and see that she’s something special. At 2 or 3, she seemed unreal to me, to perfect, she has such a presence! People gravitate to her.
The point of the observations of my kids is that they are growing up quickly, too quickly in fact! I wanted to do so much with them both, but they are growing up right before my eyes. Kind of like a weed that grows an inch or so every day. I really need to spend more time with them before they are out on their own! Life moves fast when you have kids…

My son had an awesome soccer game, he was everywhere the ball was, it was amazing, perhaps the best game that I’ve ever seen him play! I need to start to bring my camcorder to capture these moments! Same applies with my daughter’s games too, she’s even playing up a level!
Hope everybody had a great weekend!
